    Default Best solo leveling spec for Rogue soul

    Hey guys,

    I was just wondering what the best spec is for solo leveling. I'm currently specced into ranger however I was thinking of switching to assasin or something. I appreciate all of your input!

    Thanks!

    Alright, do you happen to have any specs to follow or anything? Why ranger/bard/rift?

    I found that using assassin/nightblade works well for solo quest/leveling. With the ability to sap 2 targets you can essentially pick your targets and burn them down, then switch to the next target and burn that one down.

    Rift Scavenger is basically the best solo talent for rogues ATM. I run 51 sin+ RS for soloing at 50, I can tear through 7+ mobs and come out the other end alive.

    Personally, I've enjoyed a good mix of bard (for healing and buffs) /mm (for DPS) /ranger (for pet tanking)

    Something like this @ level 25:

    With this build you get excellent range DPS with Marks.

    Also, boosts to you and your pets health from Fanfare of Vigor and healing using Cadence via Bard.

    Ranger gives you DPS boosts and a Pet tank you can heal (Rejuvenate) plus an AP buff (Predatory Instincts).

    <26 I built into this http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...dbo.iIxohogM0c
    I start with ranger pts and when I feel conforable with my pet tanking/staying alive I dump pts into sabo for dex. Don't forget to use adhesive bomb if your pet dies so it's easier to run away/kite =)

    >26 Start with this http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...dbo.iIxohogM0c and build into what looks something like this http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...dbo.iIxohogM0c

    This build is awesome! Just make sure you kill mobs with combo points on them so you can heal. =)

    i went with this "leveling + solo questing" guide

    http://www.riftjunkies.com/forums/sh...ker-Nightblade

    worked well for me from 10-50 and forsoloing at 50, theres maybe better but i feel comfortable in it.

    I tried many different specs before landing on this one, which i used from 34-50. You will be able to AoE tons of mobs at once, you will never die, and there is zero downtime. It is also pretty fun.

    Just start with filling out the riftstalker/bladedancer trees, then work on assassin.

    This, its all about Rift Scavenger. Anything with bard -lol. Any one who suggest bard for leveling needs to go back in-game and actually play the game.

    Once you get Rift Scavenger then you decide what you want to do. You can go deeper into RS for more 'burst' or survivability or PvP utility. You can go into Assassin and focus on bleeds -which count as poison attacks. You can take Nightblade and either focus on that soul or take the first 10 to buff Assassin bleeds -they hit like a truck with 10 Nightblade. You can focus on Bladedancer which is a really nice PvE farm build.

    Or

    You could throw all of that out the window and go ranged or ranged/melee hybrid. Deep Ranger offers great solo play, the pet can easily hold 3-4 mobs. If you want to kill elites and they can be snared, use a dps pet and kite them.

    Whatever you do play the entire game, do some quests, use the LFG tool and gear up when you can to help level faster and get great xp -and make friends that way. Join the zone events for great xp, fun and stack up on planars -you'll need them all latter on.
